And at a different awards show across the border…


Canadian Rapper K-Os also won himself a few awards at the Canadian MuchMusic Awards show.

Videos from rapper K-os won four trophies, while rock bands Billy Talent and Death From Above 1979 took home two apiece…

…K-os's Man I Used To Be, which features eye-catching dance moves using the Brazilian martial arts form capoeira, scored three trophies including best rap video and best cinematography…Crabbuckit, which he performed, was named best pop video.

“There's probably a lot of artists that aren't getting a voice. I feel lucky to have one,” the rapper, whose real name is Kevin Brereton, said backstage.

He also congratulated the other winners. “Canada's really cool right now. We have the best rock bands. A lot of bands that are big in the States are happy to be here,” he said.

Brereton also thanked the late prime minister Pierre Trudeau for setting up a music grant program so many years ago. “We're now reaping the benefits,” he said.

Well said. Also check out his video “Man I Used to Be”.
